Privatization in Eastern Europe : a critical approach by Iván Major( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The task of turning the state owned assets of the Eastern European countries over to private ownership is one of the most challenging of our time, both intellectually and in practical terms. Ivan Major's in-depth critique of the plans and programmes of the East European governments addresses the core issues of privatization from the perspective of both potential winners and losers. After discussing the analytical framework, he offers an assessment of the legacy of the command economy and includes individual country studies of Czechoslovakia, the former GDR, Hungary Poland and the former Soviet Union. The following chapters look at the theoretical, political and economic underpinning as well as assessment of the initial results of East European privatizations. Dr Major argues that the whole network of political regulation must be dismantled if an efficient market economy is to emerge. Privatization in Easter Europe offers a critical analysis of the movement towards privatization in Eastern Europe as well as an authoritative assessment of the existing literature. This book will be welcomed by scholars and policy makers as an important source of analysis, argument and information

Information sharing among banks about borrowers what type would they support? by Iván Major( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I address the following issue in this paper: how does information sharing among banks about borrowers affect banks' competition, and ultimately, the interest rate borrowers pay for the loan they take? One would expect that full information sharing among banks reduces lenders' risk and results in lower lending rates than any other arrangement. This may be the reason why regulators of the banking industry would like to see full information sharing in most countries. I shall show below that the regulators' expectation is usually not fulfilled. Full information sharing will result in higher lending rates than any other form of information sharing under fairly general conditions. Despite its lucrative features, banks are not always keen on supporting full information sharing. Information sharing only about bad borrowers is the fully rational banks' dominant strategy if the proportion of bad borrowers is substantial. Myopic banks would opt for no information sharing if the proportion of bad borrowers is large. Fully rational banks would only choose full information sharing if the share of bad borrowers is small. Borrowers with good credit records, on the other hand, would prefer information sharing only about bad customers rather than full or no information sharing, for they pay lower interest rates under a black list than with any other form of information sharing or with no information sharing. -- risk and uncertainty ; credit markets ; asymmetric information ; firms' inter-temporal choice ; banks ; financial institutions
Why do (or do not) banks share customer information? : A comparison of mature private credit markets and markets in transition( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Credit bureaus administering information sharing among lenders about customers reduce information asymmetry and should be key to modern credit markets. In contrast to former studies, we show that willingness to share information depends more on institutions and market concentration than on demand or other market characteristics such as, regional diversity or local monopolies. We show using infinite period models with strategic behavior that lenders’ interest to share information depends on market concentration and the type of information sharing arrangement. Sharing bad information only is the dominant strategy if banks think longterm. If banks are myopic no information sharing may occur.
